How We Solve Big Problems with Investments in Education & Workforce Development
Our Areas of Education Investment
We support organizations that get students into college, help them stay enrolled until they graduate, and help them re-enroll if they’ve dropped out. This helps students succeed as workers and entrepreneurs, leading to a better quality of life and helping the economy by supplying skilled workers to meet the projected increase in demand for tech workers.
Access and Success
Through our investments in education, we help remove systemic and financial barriers and increase the number of students with higher ed degrees and certificates. When more students can finish degrees, we all benefit.
We support entrepreneurs developing technologies that increase engagement, effectiveness, and affordability. EdTech that inspires and motivates people to learn new skills and stay ahead of the curve is invaluable to our society.
We support new models and programs that boost skills and bridge the gap between education and employment.
We believe that everyone is deserving of access to higher education, including those who have been involved with the criminal justice system. We strive to support incarcerated, returning, and systems-impacted students as they achieve their fullest academic potential.
